"Fade To Black" lyrics:

Stay
The story barely started
Can’t you stay?
Do you really want no part of this?
Oh, so sweet reverie

You back off slowly through the door
You always go and blame the weather, the weather

It hurts so fast
When love goes bad
Until at last
We fade to black

And I’m numb, numb
Numb, numb

Wait
I need some time to fix this
Can’t you wait?
We can’t afford to miss this

You back off slowly through the door
You always go and blame the weather, the weather

It hurts so fast
When love goes bad
Until at last
We fade to black

And I’m numb, numb
Numb, numb

We’re living in a memory
The present is the price I pay
Fade to black
We fade to black
We’re living in a memory
The present is the price I pay
(Fade to black)
(We fade to black)
(We’re living in a memory)
(The present is the price I pay)

It hurts so fast
When love goes bad
Until at last
We fade to black
